    I remember the good old days hanging at Game On and Boston Beer Works then stopping at Sully's Tap Room for a quick game of basketball and beer before watching the #1 seed UNH lose a heartbreak game to some team. Instead I'm home with a 6 pack that cost $9.99 instead of a draft for $12

    Wish I had. I debated because whenever I take the T the first game goes forever (see previous posts on BU thread) and then the T isn't running when we get out.

    What a swan song. ND completely given up and mailing it in.

    Shots in 3rd: 11-3. Final shots: 41-20 (yikes). 5-1 final and not that close.

    Okay, so if UNH can once again be a league powerhouse and respected opponent on the national scene, how do we get the 1st and 2nd line players that are going to BC, UML and Providi? If UNH is rated one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, and our academic rankings are enviable, especially for its 50th rank for state funding, why aren't these primo recruits coming to campus? I would think that Durham and its location to the mountains, lake's region, and Seacoast far outweigh these other schools unless you're into the city lifestyle.....so is it just Souza doing the leg work? I'm sure that the firm handshake still means what it used to when meeting in someone's living room........but what happens before the kid gets to campus? How does UNH measure up online to these other schools? Website layout, videos popping off the athletic page with UNH's successful teams (of which we have many!), player interviews, why they chose UNH.....maybe this is where we need to strengthen our packaging......let's try and move our discussion to the positives......let's help and get the team's, yes women's also, that we want representing what we remember and know UNH can be! I have been having this discussion with former players.......we want to get UNH relevant again!

    Oh for you old UNH fans like Greg and C-H-C, Snivley and Chuck I found a website with old pictures of UNH hockey going back to 1979, most have those annoying copyright stamps but many do not let me know and I'll look up the url.
    Go Cats!

    Not,going to win it this year. His track record is riding the wave of successful programs and, over time, drag them down. The miserable rosters UNH has fielded these last few years were Borek creations.

I never liked DU's on-ice coaching, from his irritating and usually poorly timed whistles for line changes, to his inability to make adjustments between periods when getting out-coached by those with inferior talented players, to allowing his players to sit back on leads back in the day. This poor coaching during regular season after regular season anways caught up with him in the post-season, such as his holding one of his three forwards back the entire NC game in Buffalo, to letting the RIT Tigers take over the regionals game in Albany that should have been an automatic trip to the FF after his team dispatched Cornell. I could go on and on and on, but typing on iPhone is too big a pain.
    For some reason Watcher has always been an apologist for Kullen. The fact is that he was a terrible recruiter and ran the program into the ground in the mid-80's. Kullen kept his job only after he agreed to get new assistants. Sean Coady and Wayne Wilson recruited most of those kids and, at the same time, encouraged some of Kullen's recruits to leave. Bob Kullen was under a tremendous amount of pressure after the 1987 season, the reason why wholesale changes were made. Of course Kullen suffered his heart issues and, for the next two years, his focus was on his health, not the future of the program.

    The thing that some aren't willing to admit is that Umile was never an Uber recruiter. He relied on others to recruit the players, then he would coach them up,when they got to Durham. This formula worked for the better part of 20 years until it no longer did. In the end, Umile's fault? Absolutely. But let's not diminish what this guy did. Some of you are making Adam Wodon's case.
